2014 combo guard Khadeen Carrington is becoming a common name among high major coaches. The 6-foot-3, 185 pound combo guard holds a few Big East offers and other high major offers as well. In his junior year at Bishop Loughlin (NY), Carrington is looking to make a big name for himself in New York City, and become another great guard to come out of the "Big Apple".
On the court, Khadeen is a slasher that is always looking to get to the rim. He is a streaky shooter and is working on consistency in his jump-shot. The lefty tries to compare his game to many other lefty guards in the NBA like James Harden, Manu Ginobili, Brandon Jennings and more.
Carrington's recruitment is beginning to take off. So far, he holds offers from UConn, West Virginia, Rutgers, Iowa State, DePaul, Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Providence, Boston College, South Carolina, SMU and more. High interest is coming in from Kansas State, Villanova, Cincinnati, Dayton, St. John's, Miami and more. As of now, UConn and Cincinnati are showing him the most love.
He also mentioned that he will take a visit to West Virginia next weekend.
Khadeen attended UConn's First Night festivities last night and had a great time:
"It was real cool. I went to the locker room and met some of the players and spent time with Coach Ollie, who's recruiting me."
Kevin Ollie isn't the only UConn recruiter that is interested in Carrington, but 2013 point guard commit Terrence Samuel and Carrington's fellow Brooklyn product is also trying to push him toward UConn.
"Khadeen is athletic, fierce when attacking the basket and a great kid." said Terrence Samuel of Carrington.
By the end of his season, Khadeen Carrington is looking to have his decision in. Expect UConn to be a big player in his recruitment as time goes on.
